What Is Self-Care?

Self-care is not the same thing as self-pampering or self-indulgence, and it doesn’t have to cost anything.

It’s not about living like royalty or surrendering to every selfish impulse.

It’s about knowing your worth and giving your mind, body, and spirit what they need in order to thrive.

And it’s about choosing to take action for your own good every day.

The purpose of self-care is to restore your energy — not take away from it. It’s not meant to deplete your bank account or add debt to your list of things to stress about.
